Vege Ham at Mr. Baguette.

About a year ago I bought this sandwich for a co-worker who is a vegetarian. He took two bites and then told me he thought that I made a mistake and bought meat. He thanked me but did not finish that sandwich because he was “sure it was ham.” I admit that I do not really eat vegetarian foods often but tonight I thought I would try the “Vege Ham” sandwich at Mr. Baguette and I was likewise in disbelief that I was not eating meat. I was told by the very nice counter person that this sandwich contains no meat. Smell, taste, texture and color – this stuff is like ham. I even opened it at one point and pulled a slice apart. It looked like meat fibers along the point of separation. Also, the crusty baguette is so good with a little tug and chew but it is the perfect crust that makes this a great sandwich bread. They pit some kind of tasty spread on the bread and very fresh lettuce and tomato – $4,25. I looked up their web page (see below) when I got home and sure enough the menu section states that a combination of vegetables “work together to give you a taste of ham.” My question is, has any vegetarians tried this sandwich and agree that it is good, or is this the norm / average for vegetarian foods?
